What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which a website may place on your computer or device when you visit a site. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Cookies serve many functions. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our Sites are performing, or allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you. The majority of websites use cookies to collect and retain personal information about their visitors. Most cookies collect general information, such as how visitors arrive at and use our Sites, the device they are using, their internet protocol address (IP address), what pages they are viewing and their approximate location.

Operating our sites

We use cookies to

  • Identify subscribers and ensure access to subscription only pages, including any relative premium access.
  • Monitor site performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise.
  • Allow us to remember your preferences.
  • Help us understand our audience and the success of content delivery. Our emails often contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel” to tell us whether, and how many times, our emails are opened and verify any clicks through to content links within the email.
  • Monitor traffic on our site.
  • Monitor and prevent suspicious activity and fraudulent traffic.
